By The Power Of Asgard!!

Believe it or not folks, this is suppose to be Thor Asgardian God Of Thunder! To me he looks more like the love child of He-Man and Jean Grey. Words fail me on describing this outfit except to say this does not make one thing Viking God, but instead its screams S&M body builder!

  1. The biggest question here is, what’s with the shoulder spandex?

  2. I love the left foot

  3. When Did Thor join Image’s Youngblood team? I also think he has metal armguards, but has no protection at all to a stomach bleeding wound. I still don’t get why all the 90’s comics had that weird centurion-type head gear. I think it’s so they can’t hear people laugh at their fasion choices. The wild hair is slightly off, And his feet are way too small, even by superhero standards. His heel is in an arkward position. Not nearly bad as the Namor fiasco last week, but not good either.

  4. Ah, The Mighty Thor, God of Bondage. For anyone who’s wondering, this costume was from a story where Thor had lost his powers (again), and it was supposed to be “a bold new direction for the character”. The costume itself was so bad, I don’t believe Thor ever even wore it in his own book. Most of the time he wore the pants part sans codpiece, and didn’t wear any of the top part. It did appear on the covers, and I think he wore it in Avengers, and sadly, I know it was what he wore in the Marvel Vs. DC crossover. The one part that isn’t in the picture above was that he also had Spawn-chains. Because, you know, 90’s. I’m pretty sure one end was attached to his belt and the other to the handle of Mjolnir. And before anyone blames Jim Lee or Rob Liefeld, we have Mike Deodato to thank for this mess.

    Liefeld always has some blame where this kind of stuff is concerned….

  6. Worf: Liefeld always has some blame where this kind of stuff is concerned….

    haha very true. We totally blame him for the next Thor costume, because it was the wonderful Hero’s Reborn one, with the glowing discs on the legs and the insanely long handle on Mjolnir.

  7. Hey, Thor is subbing for Jerrica Benton! Seriously this costume could ONLY look OK either on a female or On stage in the genderbent portion of the 80s circa Dude Looks Like A Lady!

    Mike D, AS the ARTIST, whether Liefeld INSPIRED you or not, It was your job to stop this!!!!

  8. There are so many things about this piece that stand out to me. Going from top to bottom I’ll start with the hair first. Does it really have to be that shade of yellow and look more like a lions mane? What was wrong with a no helmet or asguardian themed helmet? It kinda looks like he stole gambits head piece. What’s that semi-invisible hand and whip looking thing behind his back? The left arm and chest area look wrong to me. It’s pretty obvious. I know he’s super tough being an asguardian but if your gonna give him armor, make it cool and all the way. Don’t make him look like a guy who got cut from the village people. The um…cock piece if you will, does it have to look like that too LOL. Is Thors new theme song Dong Dong Dong DONG!? Then finally there’s that left foot that must of not formed right in the womb, and I am curious to see what the explosion is under his right foot. Maybe it’s this outfits attempt to try and make his carrer go up in smoke?

  9. Regarding the Left Foot, Thor Most have looked in the Mirror saw how awful he looks in that outfit and dropped his hammer on it in Shock!

  10. I’m actually, without exaggeration, about 40 years too late chiming in here, but I’ve NEVER liked Marvel-Thor’s outfit. I’d been heavily into myths as a wee lad, and read some Norse ones, and thought when the Thor comics came out (yes, I’m quite old, thank you) that they were WAY off the descriptions of Thor I’d read and that I thought would do just fine. I recognized even then that artists have license, so some myth-to-comics alteration is to be expected, but the Thor I’d previously imagined was, as described, a big old red-haired bearded fur-clad Viking guy who shot sparks out of his beard when he got angry and got around in a chariot pulled by immortal goats. OK, the goat part could go away, but what, I’d wondered, was up with this blond with the inauthentic Viking helmet; what were those big baby-blue dots on his torso; what do you mean he changes into a disabled doctor?… (pant, pant, splutter)
    Well, I eventually decided Asgardian fashion had evolved along different lines than here in Midgard, but I still thought it looked stupid.
    Did I have a point? Ummm…oh, yeah: This thing isn’t THAT much stupider than it’s ever been.

  11. You’re free to disagree, but I never liked Marvel’s Thor at all. I liked Thor, as a character not as a person, as the actual Norse god. You know, the burly, bearded guy with short temper and dislike for dwarves. The guy who would rather just insult you instead of speaking in badass one-liners. Yeah, he wasn’t exactly a paragon of virtue but he felt like an ancient god. Marvel’s Thor… another dude in spandex. To me, this outfit only underlines stuff that makes me dislike that “Thor”.

  12. Wait, this was Thor’s outfit for his ’80s hair-metal band, Ragna-Rock, wasn’t it? :D

  13. Hey, Myro-
    Ouch.
    Well played, sir. Well played.
